‘Drive Angry’
Nicolas Cage apparently is in the midst of his I’ll-do-anything-for-money phase. After some decent-to-good roles in “The Bad Lieutenant,” “Knowing” and “Kick-Ass,” he’s had a run of mediocre-to-awful films, playing a wizard in “The Sorcerer’s Apprentice,” a crusader in “Season of the Witch” and now, in “Drive Angry,” a father who has escaped from hell on a mission to save his granddaughter. What’s next — a sequel to the awful “Ghost Rider,” in which he played a motorcycle-riding spirit of vengeance with a flaming skull? Oh, wait — that’s coming next year. (DVD, $26.99; Blu-ray, $30.49; Blu-ray 3D, $34.99)

‘Ben Bailey: Road Rage & Accidental Ornithology’
The host of the great (and Emmy-winning) Discovery Channel game show “Cash Cab” returns to his stand-up comedy roots with a lot of humor about … hosting a game show while driving a cab. But it’s really funny, I promise you. (DVD, $19.98)

‘True Blood: Complete Third Season’
Check out what’s going on with the vampires that are not embarrassing to watch. The third season of the HBO show sees an influx of monsters, but it’s still all about the bloodsuckers here. And not a minute of twinkling. (DVD, $59.99; Blu-ray, $79.98)

‘American Graffiti: Special Edition’
Before making “Star Wars,” George Lucas and Harrison Ford reminisced over the early ’60s in “American Graffiti.” (DVD, $19.98; Blu-ray, $26.98)

‘WWE Extreme Rules 2011’
WWE champ The Miz, John Cena and John Morrison compete in a steel-cage match, which is all I really need to say, right? (DVD, $24.95; Blu-ray, $29.95)

‘Biutiful’
Javier Bardem stars in this Oscar-nominated film from Alejandro González Iñárritu about a criminal trying to make life better for his children. (DVD, $27.98; Blu-ray, $39.99)

‘Once Upon a Time in the West’
Upgrade your collection with the classic Sergio Leone epic western starring Henry Fonda, Jason Robards and tough guy, Charles Bronson. (Blu-ray, $24.99)

‘Swamp People: Season 1’
While the humidity makes NYC feel like a swamp sometimes, it’s nothing compared to what these Southern swamp people endure. (DVD, $24.95)
