Movie Dorkness contains examples of:

  • Adorkable: Goes without saying.
  • The Artifact: The formerly titular Red Suitcase, so much so she re-branded the show as Movie Dorkness
  • Ascended Fanboy: The guy who built this page from scratch with barely an idea on how to do so, and got her personal approval.

  • Catch Phrase: 'Boys, Social Status, and Clothes!" when describing a typical female conversation in media, Usually with severe irritation.
  • Concepts Are Cheap: Called out Man of Steel for its overuse of the word "hope".
  • Cross Over: Many, the most notable being her membership with a pseudo-superhero reviewer team with The Film Renegado and Mr. Mendo known as the "Agony Anarchists", her team up with Linkara to look at the 1970s Wonder Woman pilot, and with Stuff You Like doing 'First-Person' reviews of many Holmes adaptations in-character with Sofie as Holmes and Sursum Ursa as Watson.
  • Department of Redundancy Department: She's a 'Danish Dane from Denmark', and don't you forget it.
  • Ms. Fanservice: The Cosplay. Holy Crap! The Cosplay!
  • Funny Foreigner: Seen as this by many, mostly because of the accent, but, ultimately averts this.
  • Entertainingly Wrong: In her review of Twilight, Sofie Liv came to the conclusion that Mr. Mendo was a Care Bear. Which isn't that far off.
  • Evil Twin: Subverted: Sofie just had PMS.
  • Nice Hat / Scarf of Asskicking / Waistcoat of Style: As pictured above, Sofie used to wear a bowler hat, vest, and red, silk, scarf combo in her earlier videos, but, has since dropped it for more casual attire.

  • Take That: A review of Donnie Darko notes that Donnie's argument about Smurfette is very much like a Natter reply on TV Tropes.

    Sofie: Oh, go read some Spider-Man comics, you big baby!
  • Valley Girl: When Sofie reviewed the film of New Moon, a valley girl (played by Sofie in a long haired wig) appeared to challenge Sofie's negative review of the Twilight series.
