This year, the New Hampshire state motto, "Live Free or Die," makes its appearance in the title of not one, but two, motion pictures.

One is an offbeat comedy about a would-be criminal who struggles to escape the dreariness of his northern New Hampshire hometown.

The other is the fourth Die Hard film, with police detective John McClane, played by Bruce Willis.
