I have noticed that fans who write continuations of stories they love for fun, not profit, are often more respectful to them than corporate filmmakers (at least when they are not perverts like the ones you mentioned; poor Faramir and regardless of who the historical characters were no one's descendants deserve to hear about something like "Strotsky!"). Fan-fics (usually) comes from a place of love; film-makers look to satisfy the investing suits hungry for money, usually armed with graphs about the latest market trends.
