You can pick up poorly subtitled bootlegs of your favorite big-budget flick in nearly any shady DVD store in the big city, from “Harry Potter” to “Indiana Jones,” but one enterprising YouTuber who goes by the moniker GratefulDeadpool actually dubbed all of “RoTS” himself using the terribad subtitles and uploaded it as “Star War The Third Gathers: Backstroke of the West.”
