MOVIE REVIEW Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull Directed by Steven Spielberg Paramount Pictures, 2008 124 min., Rated PG-13 If we hadn't seen it with our own eyes, my movie buddy and I would not believe all the amazing things that happened to Indiana Jones and his friends during his big adventure with the crystal skull. Indiana was blown up, shot at and dropped from great distances, not just once or twice but for most of the entire two-hour film experience!
