I still think Heath Ledger did have a lot of good moments though.
Fair enough I suppose. I just don't think it's un-Joker like for him to have that almost supernaturally brilliant criminal mind and a good sense of timing. Ledger was able to sell that to me in his performance, you always got the feel he was 10 steps ahead of everyone around him.
