In at least 2 streams either Jack or Denis have brought up various movies and books they had to see/read to get in to the " correct " mindset for the writing they were doing regarding lore and working on the story/fleshing out the history of the world. ( Jack famously called this homework )

Can you share the complete list for us? I would love to spend several nights to go through a bucket list like that before the release of Deadhaus and I have a sneaky suspicion that at least a few other community members feel the same way :)

Those were the ones mentioned, but in truth, our entire lifetime of experiences is inevitably used as reference whenever something is designed. Which means sometimes we take inspiration from things we don't even remember/recognize, but they are still carried with us to some extent. :)
