It's "B-movies", not "B-grade movies".

Often to so-called dross is better than the blockbusters and art-house flicks.

I find amusing mockbusters, who wouldn't want to watch one?... I mean, there is a movie called "Be kind rewind" which is about a video store that for accident got all their VHS erased, so to maintain business the guys at the store started to "fill" with their own versions, it was a cool idea and I think in real life it would be too...

Of course piracy issue will arise, but I think it would be only because a "mockbuster" gets sucessful that big studios come for their share of the pie, as always
