One way is to use ibuffer, which offers an all-round improved buffer
menu experience. It will be part of future Emacs distributions, but is
not in any of the released versions, IIRC. I think it does some
highlighting by default, and it is easily extendable through
ibuffer-fontification-alist. For example:

(defface ibuffer-compress-face '((t (:foreground "Red" :weight bold)))
  "Ibuffer compress face")

 '(5 (string-match
      (concat "\\.\\("
              (regexp-opt '("tar" "tgz" "arj" "taz" "lzh" "zip" "z"
                            "gz" "bz2" "deb" "rpm" "bun" "bgz"))
