    A movie line

    I've just heard this on the movie "Black hawk down" and I don't know whether I got it right. So please take a look at this line and show me if there's any mistakes: "You know what I think? It's no matter what I think".
    It seems to be a very simple line but I just want to be sure ^^. Sorry if I bother you .

    ***neither a teacher nor a native-speaker***

    It should be;

    It's of no matter what I think.
    or,
    It doesn't matter what I think.

    Re: A movie line

    Could it have been "It's not a matter of what I think"?

    (What I think doesn't matter. Something else does.)
    I'm not a teacher, but I write for a living. Please don't ask me about 2nd conditionals, but I'm a safe bet for what reads well in (American) English.

    Re: A movie line

    The film is Black Hawk Down, and the quote you're referring to is this one:

    "Y'know what I think? Don't really matter what I think. Once that first bullet goes past your head, politics and all that sh** just goes right out the window."

    Keep in mind that characters in films do not always use correct grammar!
