The movies and cut scenes is where it changes the aspect ratio from 4:3 to something different that I don't remember, 320:x I think. So all of the pixels in such screens are translated for some reason, but yeah as far as I've read the hi-res mechanism is only useful on just the original N64 hardware. Due to, more-or-less, hardware improvements and changes in an emulator (not to mention filtering) the effect isn't really significant or existent. Just 4 MB RAM without hi-res should work fine.
