Mad Max Beyond Thunderdome (1985)
When introducing Max to the Thunderdome crowd, Dr. Dealgood calls him "The Man with No Name". This is a reference to Clint Eastwood's character in Sergio Leone's "spaghetti westerns", particularly A Fistful of Dollars, where his character also enters a town as a drifter and plays the two ruling factions against each other for profit.
The character of "Captain Walker", the absent father-figure/savior/pilot, is clearly a reference to "Captain Walker" from the film Tommy. Also, the presence of Tina Turner (who protrayed the "Acid Queen" in "Tommy") strengthens the connections between the two movies.
The scene where Max chases Blackfinger around a corner and then comes running back with guards chasing him is an homage to the scene with Han Solo on the Death Star.
