You have this tagged with both zip and gzip, but here's both. These are both pretty standard Unix tools, whic Mac OS X supports (as far as I know, anyway):

zip file: unzip -vl file.zip

Example:

[23:02:22] ~/Download $ unzip -vl lightbox2.04.zip 
Archive:  lightbox2.04.zip
 Length   Method    Size  Cmpr    Date    Time   CRC-32   Name

gzip file: gunzip -lv file.gz

Example:

[23:03:55] ~/Download $ gunzip -lv mudlet.tar.gz
