Tremors
Clue
Fifth Element
Galaxy Quest

"Community" or "Rick and Morty" goes into the player anytime I'm sick and want to take my mind off it.

"Lord of the Rings" or the Harry Potter movies are kind of a 'christmas thing' for me. I alternate.

Jupiter Ascending - I know it was poorly received but I just love it.

Constantine / The Order

Tron Legacy - often just because I love the soundtrack so damned much =)

Given my generation, there were a few films you simply couldn't avoid seeing repeatedly even if you wanted to, but fortunately I loved them:

The Wizard of Oz
It's a Wonderful Life

The rest are a strange assortment of personal favorites:

The 39 Steps
Dinner at Eight
Grand Hotel
Queen Christina
Casablanca
To Have and Have Not
Inn of the Sixth Happiness
Sabrina
The Sound of Music
Henry V (Kenneth Branagh version)
Nightmare Before Christmas
Frozen
Minions

All I had to do was look at the few I've actually purchased, it ranges from the VERY dark comedy to silly.

Harold & Maude (my ex actually named a pair of cats after them in the 80's)
Blues Brothers
MIB - the original
Star ship Troopers
The Big Lebowski
Mulholland Drive (David Lynch's)
Pulp Fiction
Kill Bill (all three)
Fargo
Fido (hilarious Zombie movie)
Shawn of the Dead
Attack of the Killer Tomatoes
Beetle Juice
Eraser Head
Raising Arizona
Oh Brother where Art Thou
Snakes on a Plane
Night of the Living Dead
Child's Play (who doesn't love Chucky?)
The 1960 original version of "Little Shop of Horrors
Mars Attacks
The original, 1954 Godzilla Movie
Mothra (1961)
Gamera (1965)
Gorgo, a 1961 film so obscure that I doubt anyone has heard of it Gorgo (film) - Wikipedia but I've watched it probably 15 times as a kid and at least once as a grown ass adult. In 1961 I made my Grandfather take me to that movie at least five times if not more, those were the days when we had drive in theaters.

Raising Arizona! I'd almost forgotten that film existed. That was on my list of most re-watched once but I don't own a copy of it any more. Nicholas Cage's best movie.

I have watched all of The Lord of the Rings and Harry Potter a few times.

I have seen Back to the Future a lot.

In more recent movies, I have watched Scott Pilgrim.vs the World more times than I will admit.

I saw Jurassic Park and Independence Day like 5 times each in theaters, since they were both kind of the same peak of "disposeable income and time" period of my life.

I know there are several I watched repeatedly when I was younger. Goonies and Willow come to mind.

That’s three of you who named Harold and Maude and I’ve never even heard of this movie until this thread. I feel like I’m really missing out on something.

Two of you have said Galaxy Quest now and I don’t think I’ve watched that. I will have to go look into it.
It's a parody of Star Trek, and Star Trek fandom. Watch Rocky Horror Picture Show first, and make it a science fiction double feature.

As far as what I rewatch, I have tended to watch TV series mutliple times more often than movies, in terms of screen time. But among my collection of films, the ones I watch multiple times include:

Who Framed Roger Rabbit
Back to the Future trilogy
Marvel Cinematic Universe (20 films)
Moulin Rouge
The Adjustment Bureau
The Last Mimzy
The Princess Bride
Tomorrowland

Full Metal Jacket... I just love to watch the gunny going romantic on Private Pyle over and over and over again!

Aside that, the shots they made in London as Vietnam lookalike are pretty convincing.
