schumacher

verb;
To create a sequel to or continuation of a work of media that does not stand up to the original creator’s intent and/or talent. Presumed reason for coinage The author wished to link level of revulsion he felt at the last two _Batman_ movies with their director. The intention was to make the connotation of "to schumacher" negative. Notes This word is taken entirely from the surname of Joel Schumacher, director of _Batman Forever_ and _Batman and Robin_. The coiner of the word felt that Schumacher had desecrated the memory of _Batman_ and _Batman Returns_, both directed by Tim Burton.
 
I guess a simple definition of 'to schumacher' is 'to corrupt a profound, well made, wholesome, or simply good idea, concept, or work into a trite, shallow, meaningless piece of incomprehensible drivel.
Etymology : Eponymy from Joel SCHUMACHER.
