A debate I'd had with colleagues at work - is it grammatically correct to omit the possessive apostrophe if you're talking about the products produced by a company?
i.e "I love Disney films" versus "I love Disney's films" or "do you like Ferrari supercars?" versus "do you like Ferrari's supercars?"

The sentences using the company names as adjectives are grammatically correct.

@SR1991,
Think of the company as a singular entity. So treat it (singular reference again) grammatically as a singular subject.
