Yeah i saw that post which is what prompted me to ask can you get the movie likes.

In that example you can only access users after they have users accept the application.  But there are millions who have the likes on public display.

I saw this post which used SQL and the response said you can access Movies;

Free Tool: ZipGrep

ZipGrep is a utility that can list and search zip (.war, .ear, .jar, etc) archives for text patterns, without the need to extract the archive's contents.

$feed = $facebook->api('/me/feed');
 $profile = $facebook->api('/me');

foreach ($feed['data'] as $entry)
  //do some filtering.. example from stackoverflow:
  //$isStatusUpdate = array_key_exists('message', $entry) and $entry['from']['name'] == $profile['name'];
  if (array_key_exists('likes', $entry))
            $likes = count($entry['likes']);

Done a bit of reading up on it and i can access my friend movie likes via;

https://graph.facebook.com/ user_id /movies?access_token=

but cant access public profiles this way.  Any suggestions on how to access the public profiles?

Bit more digging and i can access my and my friends movies via;

https://api.facebook.com/method/fql.query?format=XML&access_token=myToken&query=SELECT page_id FROM page_fan WHERE uid=%user_id%

Is there a way to change it so i can see public movie likes?
