Meet The Author

Michael Dwyer (1951-2010) was the film editor and long-standing film critic of the Irish Times. He wrote on film for close to thirty years and by his own admission was practically even born in a cinema. His reviews and interviews appeared several times a week and his ‘Reel News’ column was a very popular column in The Ticket supplement, which appears every Friday with the Irish Times.

The Irish public seem to love movies and going to the movies — we have the highest rate of cinema attendance in Europe. Irish directors and actors enjoy an increasingly high level of success and movies such as Braveheart, Saving Private Ryan and Mary Queen of Scots have put Ireland on the map as a film location.
Allied to our love of film seems to be a love of trivia; witness the popularity of pub quizzes and TV programmes such as Who Wants to be a Millionaire. Former Irish Times film editor Michael Dwyer’s Film Quiz Book features questions on Irish, Hollywood and World cinema with fifty rounds of ten questions — some rounds based on certain themes or genres and a range of degrees of difficulty to suit most level
