It did look like controlled demolitions. There's no denying that. The key words the truthers keep avoiding is LOOKED LIKE, as in "similar to" or "has the appearance of". That doesn't mean it *was* controlled demolitions any more than Justin Bieber looking like a girl means he's actually a girl.
Just like everything else in the universe that "looks like" something else in the universe, the more you analyze it the more the "it doesn't look like" details starts coming out. For one thing, every video of the collapse specifically shows that when the initial collapse started, it looked like a beer can being crumpled rather than beign severed by explosives. For another, actual controlled demolitions have explosive flashes clearly visible, and I don't mean the "you need to strain your eyes and wash the video image through several filters to see them" kind. I mean the "there they are blatantly right there in front of you clear as day" kind.
The moral of the story? Justin Bieber really isn't a girl; he's just a boy who needs a little more Y chromosome in his diet.
