In the other post we talked about how there was not too much originality in the movie. I think there were many homages in this film. I am going to start off with a few.

When Morgan Freeman was firing the belt fed fed weapon, he paraphrased Roy Schneider in Jaws. "Come on you son of a bitch"

Three drones flying through a canyon in the same formation as Darth Vader and two tie fighters.

When a drone is destroyed outside the scab base, it spins wildly firing in all directions like the Death Blossom maneuver in The Last Starfighter.

Nice. I recall that too now that you mention it.

The little plant that he has in the can is like the plant that Wall-E found.

The movie poster with the water falling between the skyscrapers reminds me of the tall skysrapers that are falling into the ocean in Inception when they go down to Limbo.
