It takes days of planning and proper explosives to bring down a building perfectly...
You can mess up even when done right, look on you tube there's tons of messed up demo videos.
Thats two perfect implosions by happenstance, putting all else aside that still gets me.

The thermite didn't necessarily have to bring the buildings down. My working theory is that thermite tape (for lack of a better term) was wrapped around major load-bearing girders top to bottom and ignited sometime after the impacts, cutting the girders through diagonally, but not fully
Keep in mind that software existed at the time to simulate the whole thing so engineers of the demolition knew where to put the thermite and how much to cut so they'd be successful.
