    Hi Rascal, well "Berjudul" can be translated as "titled" in English. So Berjudul is often used to title a book, a movie, or a song.

    i.e Saya kemaren membaca buku yang berjudul Life of Pi
    Yesterday I read a book titled Life of Pi

    While "Bernama" can be translated as "named" in English. So Bernama is often used to name a person (mostly), a place, a road, and a pet.
    i.e Guru yang bernama Jeane akan mengajar matematika di kelas ku besok
    The teacher named Jeane will teach math in my class tomorrow

    So, if you're referring Indiana Jones as a person then you should use bernama, but if Indiana Jones is title of
    a book, you should use berjudul.

    Nope it helps Rascal :)
