Ledger's Joker is absolutely up there in terms of all-time creep cinematic villains.

That's a pretty silly statement. One doesn't need to be a 'hater' to have not found TDK's Joker in the upper echelon of comic book villains.

I myself am sort of divided on the subject. I found Ledger's performance to be excellent but then I have to also take into account what the character actually does(with regards to the writing/story/plot/etc.) and that's where it really stinks(not Ledger's fault, he didn't write it).
