The English wording here is awkward at best.

Nah, it sounds passable for a Californian teenager. The only suspicious thing is the complete absence of "like" anywhere in this sentence ;-)

Your placement of уже is wrong. Уже here refers to "девятый раз" (the ninth time) and hence separating it from "девятый раз" by pretty much the whole sentence makes no sense (nor would it in English). In principle, уже could refer to "смотрел" (which would require dropping "девятый раз"): "I already saw this film yesterday", but even then your placement of уже would not work. I would be either "Я уже смотрел/видел этот фильм вчера" or "Я вчера уже смотрел/видел этот фильм" or "Вчера я уже смотрел/видел этот фильм". In either case, уже would be attached to "смотрел".

Another word order question: Why was "Вчера я смотрел уже девятый раз этот фильм" marked wrong?

How would you say "for the 2nd, 3rd or 4th time? " Do you have to use ordinal numbers here?

Just drop 'уже' - it's both understood and therefore redundant & including it makes the sentence ridiculous

Ridiculous of course in English literal translation though perfectly acceptable in russian I guess
